CARSON CITY, Nev. (Legal Newsline) — Nevada Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt announced April 11 that he applauds the unanimous,bipartisan decision by the state’s interim finance committee to approve using non-taxpayer settlement funds to assist in the expansion of Reno Veterans Guest House, which provides temporary lodging to Nevada veterans and their families.

The house, which specifically works with low-income veterans and has been in operation for more than 20 years, houses 17 beds. Expansion will add 33 beds, allowing the house to service more veterans in need.

“Serving my fellow veterans is an honor and a privilege,” Laxalt said in a statement. “I commend Reno Veterans Guest House not only for their desire to expand their facility to assist more Nevada veterans in need but for their continued support of those who have selflessly served our state and country.”

Laxalt’s office will specifically contribute $58,422 in non-taxpayer settlement funds.

“It is so wonderful to see the support that is being provided to our veterans,” Veterans Guest House CEO Noreen Leary said in a statement. “The Nevada Military Support Alliance commitment was paramount to our moving forward with this project. It means veterans will have one less thing to worry about when they are away from home undergoing medical care.”
